Very good value hotel with parkingPosted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: We wanted the parking for our hire car. Sea front location was nice, but quite a way from central Funchal. Very quiet at night
Cons: Can't think of anything, for this price. There is only a 2 person lift, so that might be a pain if you were on Floor 10 ! We just used the stairs!
Location: Handy for food shopping. Good choice of restaurants within walking distance and you can walk along the seafront under the hotel.
Our room had a lovely sea view from balcony. Kitchen in room was great for self catering and picnics. Good supermarket just over road. Our floor had recently been refurbished and was new and clean. Large, good shower.

Vähän niin ja näin..Posted Oct 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hyvää: merinäköala, hinta ja allasbaarin henkilökunta. Kehitettävää: vastaanoton henkilökunta vältteli kontaktia eivätkä juurikaan tervehtineet. Huoneemme lattia oli tullessa siivoamatta. Toisessa huoneistossa (904) oli paha haju, joka levisi vessasta koko huoneistoon; tämä ongelma ei poistunut missään vaiheessa. Hotels.com huoneistoesittelyssä oli mainittu varusteeksi kahvinkeitin, mutta sen sai vain lisämaksua vastaan; virhe oli kuulemma palvelunmyyjän ei hotellin. Safetybox löytyi myös huoneistosta, mutta vain lisämaksua vastaan. Tiskiaine ja pesutyyny puuttuivat ja ajattelin niidenkin edellyttävän lisämaksua, kuitenkin viimeisenä päivänä ne yllättäen toimitettiin huoneistoon. Huoneisto kannattaa varata mahdollisimman ylhäältä sillä alakerroksissa on meneillään (lokakuu 2014) remontti. Länsipuolella naapuritalon ilmastointilaitteet saattavat häiritä herkkäunisimpia.

Bra beliggenhet.Posted May 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Sentralt i forhold til kjøpesenter, buss til Funchal m.m. Hotellet har egen restaurant med nydelig mat. Rommene trenger oppussing, og spesielt badet hadde dårlig standard. Godt renhold og hyggelig personale.

Hotel Duas Torres - good value basic hotelPosted Jan 19, 2014
Pros: Good value for money. Good location. Great views. Excellent, friendly staff.
Cons: The initial poor cleanliness was disappointing. Redecoration and more modern furniture would refresh the hotel and make a big improvement.
Location: Good location, plenty to do nearby. An hours walk to the centre. Recommend Il Basilica, Fora D'oras and a self-guided walk along Levada dos Piornais.
We were initially disappointed at the poor cleanliness of the room. However after informing reception and going out for the evening we came back to find the room had been better cleaned. It was about an hours walk to the heart of Funchal, which was fine for us but a little tiring sometimes. There were plenty of cheap buses and taxis passing the hotel though for those less active. There was a shopping centre opposite with great clothes shops and a big supermarket. It was easy to pick up the promenade, which was has a nice, lively atmosphere with cafes, bars, playgrounds and nice views out to sea. Also some great restaurants nearby including Il Basilico just off the promenade, where we ate on new years eve and Fora D'Oras which did an excellent yet affordable Bife na Padra [fillet steak on a hot stone]. We also had an amazing view from our 11th floor balcony of the NYE fireworks. One of the best things we did was walk from the hotel along the Levada dos Piornais. We didn't bother paying for a guided levada walk, and it was really easy to find and follow the water course though the villages to the mountains - stunning walk and great exercise.

Great place to spend New Year's EvePosted Jan 9, 2014
Pros: Pretty much everything.
Cons: The hotel gate is a little difficult to maneuver without getting out of the vehicle or someone else raising the bar manually.
Location: The winter is not their best weather, cold and overcast especially the highlands. The island is rich in history and natural beauty, the people warm.
Funchal is famous for their holiday fireworks display and this hotel has a rooftop view that is thrilling. Their kitchenette room was well stocked to allow the traveler to make their own food if they would like to save a few dollars by eating in. The town does have good restaurants however. We would absolutely recommend this hotel to others visiting Madeira.

Emplacement exceptionnelPosted Aug 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
Rapport qualité prix très bien.Un effort à faire sur le ménage des chambres, et sur le petit déjeuné qui n'est pas assez varié. Manque de personnel.

Great hotel for every onePosted Apr 4, 2013
Pros: ocean front, large balcony to enjoy the sun at your privacy, the ocean pedestrian walk,very spectacular views .
Cons: The hotel cleaners do not reply when you say hello. They are not friendly. I don’t think they are aware of their impacting on the hotel’s reputation.
Location: The hotel is located halfway between the airport and funchal city. There is always gale wind in areas towards airport and less air breath in Funchal.
I read other people experience of the hotel before I did my booking. All the good comments I read about the hotel were found to be very true. I also read couple of negative comments - shower difficult to adjust; kitchen could have been better equipped, etc. Fortunately, I did not experience these. All was good beyond my expectation. All rooms ending in 5, 6 and 7 have good ocean view. I stayed in a room ending in 5 (It has 75% ocean view and 25% Funchal city view). I loved it better than rooms ending in 6 & 7 (i.e. 100% ocean view which can be thick dark view in the evening). The hotel is located halfway between the airport and funchal city. Therefore, the hotel area has better temperature than both sides (There is always gale wind in areas towards airport and less air breath in Funchal). I understand VAT has increased recently from 4% to 22%. Therefore, eating in a restaurant has become relatively very expensive. The hotel equipped kitchen and the big supermarket across the road is great help to minimise expense. The ocean pedestrian walk starts behind the hotel and ends in Funchal. It is aprox 1.5 hours (one way) walk. It is about Euro 10 by taxi. The walk has very spectacular views - not only Ocean view but also parks. Having said all the above, I would like to say if the hotel cleaners were friendly, at least greet back when I say hello, it would have been wonderful. I don’t think they are aware of their personality impact on hotel’s reputation.

Apartment hotel Duas Torres, FunchalPosted Feb 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
Vi återkommer till hotellet vid nästa besök. Passade våra behov perfekt, nära till promenader utefter havet lätt parkera bilen, nära shoppingcenter. Internet vid receptionen, hade det funnits på rummet hade det varit ett plus.
